Men Up to Their Elbows in Mud: Geoduck Hunting on The Perennial Plate
The folks at The Perennial Plate are on a foraging kick, similar to our Cook's Adventures: Eat from the Sea piece in the August issue. They just released a new video on their website about three natural ingredients that can be (somewhat) easily found near the ocean on the West Coast: greens, giant clam and - why wasn't this obvious before? - salt.
Seattle mag's fav forager and regular contributor Langdon Cook is featured in the video (3:46) in his element: elbow deep in rich, watery mud, hunting for geoducks.
It's a fun video, with helpful tips for cooking with all the "found" goods.
Thanks to our food editor, Allison Austin Scheff for the tip!
